was suburbanites turned on the democrats and we got richard nixon. we can prematurely declare these things sometimes. a cautionary note. >> goldie, the piece says today's gop is taking its cues from john calhoun and his belief in nullification. the idea that states can ignore federal law. he writes it's not a coincidence that the resurgence of nullification is happening while our first african-american president is in office. how du the gop reach out to a broader demographic when we see how it's treated this nation's first black president? >> that is the grand irony but the truth of the matter is they're not only hearkening back to calhoun, but they're playing the script of kevin phillips who was the chief architect of the southern strategy. this was the chaining together of those southern confederate states, those 11 states, with what was happening out west and up through the midwest, and he said at the time we can frankly do without manhattan. we can do without new york. we can do without chicago. we can do without all these major city that is were largely black and brown. the republican

strategy with strom thurmond and those boys? >> that's why the great gary wills said richard nixon was the last liberal and there is a reference, willie brown is right, there should have been more, in a longer piece there would be more on that, on the philadelphia plan, but, yes, affirmative action, a phrase originated in the kennedy years, was seized on by the nixon administration. hey, daniel patrick moynihan said about nixon, this guy is not trying to undo the great society, he wants to outdo it. and what happened? ideologues within the conservative movement turned against nixon. >> well -- >> women -- >> let me go to willie brown. i know nixon. i'm not necessarily a nixon hater by any means. he was a member of the naacp in the '50s. pret friendly with whitney young, getting to know martin luther king ahead of the kennedys. and then becomes a totally mean guy in terms of electoral politics, hooking up with strom thurmond figuring he was going to grab what was left of the segregationists in the south when they were dispointed with the democrats. what happened to this guy? >> i th

, whether it was jerry ford, whether it was richard nixon, whether it was jimmy carter with the rescue mission, failed rescue mission of the diplomats in tehran or ronald reagan with grenada. never has a president just said, thanks very much. let me know later what happens. ding. puts the phone down. martha: panetta suggested that was not the way he was. that the president was very much wanted to know what was going on. when he asked did he call you back? did he get it touch with you, the answer to that was no. we also know we had forces in italy were told, actually, don't take off just yet. you need to change out of uniform if you're going to be involved in this in any way. in the end they were not involved in any way. so it goes to the bigger question again why? why would the president not want to step in and help these people? >> what i heard they didn't want a black hawk down incident. any use of american forces before an american election. they could have a situation where there were even more american casualties, american hostage, something would have happened. i think the other

have is the historical record. and we know that it happened after richard nixon revived a phrase of john f. kennedy's from the early '60s, affirmative action. he began with the philadelphia plan, to open up closed labor unions, in that city, philadelphia, businesses embraced the idea. william f. buckley jr. in 1970 said let's have preferential hiring. it was another wing of the conservative movement, the neoconservatives who objected to affirmative action, called it affirmative discrimination. but the author of that argument, nathan glazer, then recanted. why did he recant? because just as you say, businesses were willing to do it. this is not about business. this is about as howard dean said the hard-core ideology of a conservative movement which continues to drive that party. >> okay, sam, we're going to leave it there. thank you for heating up the set here. >> any time. >> we appreciate it. >> joe, appreciate it. >> thanks. >> we've got some msnbc's viewers. maybe just a couple of them. i don't know. maybe not. maybe zero. >> i want to shower after that. >> he's right. he's ri
